Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates- 29 January 2020: As part of its participation at Arab Health 2020, in collaboration with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH), Malaffi exclusively previewed a game-changing and first-of-its-kind patient app. Malaffi is the region’s first unified Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform, created as a Public Private Partnership between DOH and Injazat Data Systems. This patient app is set to be launched and rolled out later this year.The easy-to-navigate app was developed with patients in mind, putting the patient in need at the heart of the user experience design. Placing a premium on convenience, patients will be empowered to access their Malaffi file which contains a summary of their medical history, test results, key information about their treatment and medication – all accessible from anywhere and at any time.
The app will encourage patients to take a more proactive, hands-on approach to managing their own healthcare and will support prevention and increase health awareness. The app will improve the patient experience and overall quality of healthcare in Abu Dhabi. The app is expected to be met with wide support with a recent survey, conducted by YouGov, showing that 88% of Abu Dhabi residents would be interested in downloading the Malaffi patient application
Commenting on the partnership, H.E Mohammed Hamad Al Hameli, Undersecretary of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, said: “DoH continues to work in unison with strategic partners in the healthcare sector to set the stage for a future driven by healthcare technology, innovation and artificial intelligence, all in the name of enhancing the quality of Abu Dhabi’s healthcare sector. As such, Malaffi is an example of the critical role of technology in transforming the patient experience and empowering residents to monitor and manage their medical care.”
Mr Atif Al Braiki, CEO of Malaffi said: “We look forward to sharing our insights and pioneering practices with the industry over the next few days at Arab Health. We believe that the way to overcome today’s considerable healthcare challenges – particularly in this brave new, digital world – is to develop more advanced and accessible approaches to healthcare delivery. We are extremely proud of the strides we have made so far and remain committed to creating a healthier Abu Dhabi – as exemplified by our Malaffi patient app.”
